Ã An Impolite Seduction (Countess Trilogy #2) Ë Download by ✓ Alison Richardson This was the book equivalent of those hour long pornographic serial shows on premium channels There s no real story and no real character development The story is just a framework to move the characters from one sexual escapade to another I m fine with explicit sex, but I like a story and characters to support it If all you want is sex, then you ll probably like this book I couldn t finish it.

In book 1, The Countess s Client, we meet the young and worldly Prussian countess Anna, to whom sex is basically a healthy exercise She has had plenty of lovers in the past Anna is of highborn and her POVs are quite snobbish I did enjoy her jaded and uppity POV because I thought she was smart with an interesting personality I still think she s mostly smart, if only she could lose quite a bit of her snootiness Anna had an adventure or misadventure, depends on how one looks at it of sort in a brothel where her cousin took her because he thought it d be fun Anna did have fun with a lowborn mechanic who was working for the King, a Scot named James McKirnan She masqueraded as a whore to service this lowborn man whom no other prostitutes liked because of his station and obvious assumption that he has little money However, things go wrong when later, James falls for her and asks Anna to become his mistress There was no HEA surely because Anna finds a way to spurn James s idiotic emotions and proposition After all, a countess like her would NEVER make her affair to this lowborn man known to the world For shame 3 years have passed ever since and Anna thought she d seen the last of James back in Paris She s now in England to attend the marriage of a cousin, Charlotte The dialogue starts out the usual funny Anna way, who thinks her cousin is destined to have an uninspiring wedding night because her intended is a prude of the first order To make matters worse, Charlotte is also a virgin That won t do Anna thinks girls should never keep their virginity till their marriage bed something she didn t do herself and find a way to get rid of it ASAP Anna makes an attempt to talk to the groom to have some much needed experience Though handsome, the man is apparently beyond any hope of a change, so she talks to her cousin instead It seems Charlotte understands the necessity of this step before her marriage and agrees to Anna s plans Anna writes to a young Italian rake don t know if one of her lovers though, was never mentioned to perform the task Oh well, I did want to read the whole scene between Lorenzo and Charlotte because whatever little I read was hot I totally enjoyed how Anna would translate Lorenzo s dirty words into something flowery for the sake of Charlotte s delicate sensibilities before leaving them to carry on with the plan snickers Even though Anna s plan here went accordingly, she had no luck in hiding from James, who is also attending the marriage ceremony Oh yah, he s here alright and is well aware of her presence The man is still mad according to Anna, though I knew he was mad for her and dangerous Worse, he now has plenty of money you gotta read Anna s reaction as to how vulger James is eyeroll and building a house nearby But James Good GOD, that scene at the dinner table, where many of the guests were present I can t even explain what James did It was SO hot, I became James s champion just by reading that scene I was laughing and shaking my head There was no denying how mad he is for Anna As usual, Anna s body is giving her all the signals that it still wants him something bad, maybe than the others she d had so far but she s still determined to make him go away Oh f cking is alright, having any kind of emotional attachment is not Then James goes and proposes to her this time, marriage Anna is horrified She can t marry a lowborn, a commoner and lose her title What is there in life if she loses her title Anna is now ever determined to get away from James This is THE point where I began to get very annoyed at her Her interesting personality suddenly didn t seem that interesting to me any.
The later parts of the story do regale us with the battle of will and lust between Anna and James with a VERY hot sex scene between them James talks to Charlotte s prudish husband about their affair to make her agree to his proposal Anna is angry at him for this, and at Charlotte s husband for lecturing her about the necessity of a marriage because she used her body without the bond of it As a payback, she arranges for Charlotte to witness what a hypocrite her husband was where sex was concerned the guy was shagging the upstairs maid with a vigor and interest he never showed to Charlotte because she s his wife don t ask Lorenzo was already pining away for Charlotte and Anna helps her to reach him while planning a divorce.
As for James, Anna does some stuff I wanted to slap her for it to prove that James is a pervert, just as Charlotte s husband, so that he can never make any other efforts to trap her into a marriage she so obviously doesn t want.
Umm Anna, not as smart as I thought you were I m sorely disappointed in you sigh I just hope that she improves in the final installment 3.
5 stars for the good writing and for James Damn but that guy s HOT There Is Nothing In The World Less Appealing Than A Chaste Young Man At Least That S The Opinion Of Countess Anna Von Esslin, Who Is Shocked To Learn Her Cousin Has Gotten Engaged Without A Single Taste Of Passion But While The Countess Arranges Her Cousin S Seduction, She Is Also Reunited With James McKirnan, A Man Intent On Seducing Her And James Is Certainly Far From Chaste
